With the velocity at which this photo is making its way around the web this morning, there's a good chance you've already seen it. And if you haven't, well, you need to, because this shot of a young woman being pepper sprayed by police yesterday in Portland is likely going to be one of the most iconic images of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.

The photo, taken by the Oregonian's Randy Rasmussen, was captured yesterday at protests near the JP Morgan Chase Building in downtown Portland. The protests were part of a widespread collection of events called N17 (named after yesterday's date) that occurred around the country. Several arrests were made in Portland, in addition to other cities, including more than 300 people in New York.

Tumalo Falls at Night

A great shot by Christian Heeb of Tumalo Falls.

During two of our workshops we shot night photos at Tumalo Falls and Smith Rock. Before going there I went out to Tumalo one night to do some scouting. I arrived after 7 p.m. at the falls and without moonlight, I could barely make out the silver shine of the falls and the creek.

After putting my camera on a tripod and trying to point it in the right direction, I let it expose for 11 minutes at f4. It takes the processor in the camera an additional five minutes to do the noise reduction.

After 15 minutes, the image was ready for me to look at. It’s amazing how the camera sees more than the eye. In the photo you can see the complete scene, including the shine of my headlamp on the trees. Great news for photographers. Now you can also go out and shoot in the dark.

A Look at Occupy Portland

A look at the Occupy Portland protest, where 10 were arrested early this morning.

The Occupy Portland movement has been in the national news as of late mostly due to the rash of arrests of protestors over the last few days, including some arrests early this morning at Schrunk Plaza.

The Occupy Bend phenomenon is much smaller and less contentious than what's going on over in Portland, so it might be easy not to understand how large this movement has become in larger cities, so here's a quick look, thanks to a Source staffer who is over in Portland today. He sent over these photos from the area surrounding SW Main and Fourth streets in downtown Portland. "Four blocks of this," his email was titled.
